tale of the love between a forest nymph and a tree. the nymph starts dating the tree then catches a squirrel hanging out on it, becomes jealous and takes things into her own hands.

this was suppose to be longer and have more of a plot but scenes weren't completed by team members so this is it...

I did all of the animating, however fellow team mates came up with the story, designed the characters and backgrounds:
Traci Cook -story concept and backgrounds
Vivien Chen -character design
Ian Caywood- did something but doubt it's anywhere in this short
chris ferracane- did something but doubt it's anywhere in this short

the audio track was written and recorded by my husband Matthew Rivera an amazing Composer and Pianist :) check out some of his other songs he's composed at his myspace--- tthewrivera

added note 3/31/08--- I animated this in 2006, for a college project for Animation Team Production.
that particular class was a two quarter class, first quarter dealt with pre-production, second quarter was of course production... well I latched onto this project in the second quarter phase, I had nothing to do with the story concept or how the characters looked, that was all done by the other team members in the first quarter. I was only supposed to animate the first montage scene, but since other team members didn't do their share I had to animate the tv/popcorn scene and the whole end scene with the squirrel. I pulled off 2 other people's share of work within 2 weeks when they had an entire 11 weeks to work on it. so of course this animation isn't as finished as it should be

Hello ninjaJanena,

I found the emotion put into the character to be truly inspiring. Characters that act out their emotions allow me to become involved with the characters and see the world through their eyes. I don't mind a little bit of choppiness in the animation, in fact the frames were executed at such a speed that it didn't take away from the story or the overall enjoyment of the film. Interesting idea (highly plausible for confused forest nymphs) and hilarious ending. Good job!

Also, I hope the course awarded a high mark for this!
